You may want to print the project notes below, too. Start by drawing a guideline down the center to give balance and to help keep things even. Then using basic shapes of circles and ovals draw the top and base of the birdbath. All the curves of the top and the bottom should match so don't draw a curved bowl and straight lines elsewhere. The body of the pedestal is shaped like a teardrop.  It helps to draw from the top down doing a little on each side as you measure against the guideline.

Add decorations, like leaves or shapes.Use a guideline to keep the decorations following the same curves as the top bowl.

Using shading will give the effect of the birdbath being round and three dimensional.

Put the birdbath in a scene like a garden by adding flowers around the bottom. Put a wall or fence behind it. Add bushes behind the wall and trees behind the fence. Bushes and leaves can give a contrast effect against the smooth stone of the birdbath.
